Hi, netters,

I'm the one loving traveling everywhere. I think the nature can
tell you what you are.

Here is the lsit of 256-color pictures taken in my trip to Egypt,
mainly Cairo, Luxor and Sharm el Shaykh.

The pictures were taken by using Canon EOS10 with ultrasonic zoom,
and scanned by a 18bit 200dpi scanner.

               ancient Thebes.  Its excellent preservation of 
               historical   sites   makes   it  as  the  most
